HBO Pulls Biggest Stunt Yet For 'Game Of Thrones' DVD Release. | HBO

Westeros is becoming a reality.

To celebrate the release of the third season of "Game of Thrones" on DVD, HBO has changed the name of the small town of Kings Langley to Kings Landing, the capital city from the fantasy series.

Kings Langley is a small town outside of London, and "a producer for the hit HBO show heard the town listed as a stop while waiting for a train at London's Euston station and was inspired to instigate the name change," according to Radio Times.

The name change will be short-lived (only a week) and will happen in February.

"Game of Thrones" will be released on DVD Feb. 18.
